#202: Interview of Clay Tarver of Chavez

November 25, 2014

Joining us this week is Clay Tarver, guitarist of Chavez, to talk about the history of the band and their two releases for Matador Records, 1995's Gone Glimmering and 1996's Ride The Fader. We go deep into the past, present and future of the band, dig into their connection to Ohio via Guided By Voices and the New Bomb Turks, explore the development of the Chavez sound, how Zwan uncovered an unknown Chavez fanbase, discuss the possibility of a new Chavez album, and much, much more. And that's not the half of it, as we revisit his time pre-Chavez in Bullet LaVolta, how college roommate Donal Logue lead him to J.J. Abrams and a career in screenwriting, and working with Mike Judge on the HBO show Silicon Valley.
